Run for Ruff

The entire community is invited to participate in the inaugural Ruff Road Race, held rain or shine, on Sunday, May 5, at Oak Ridge High School.

This special race honors friend and former Track and Field Coach Josh Ruff, who lost his life last year in a tragic winery accident where he worked part time as assistant winemaker. The Ruff Road Race will benefit the Track and Field Team at Oak Ridge High School. Ruff not only coached the Track and Field team, he is also a former student and track star from Oak Ridge.

The Ruff Road Mile and 5K Run will begin at 8 a.m. Both races will begin at the corner of Silva Valley and Serrano Parkway and end in the Oak Ridge High School Stadium.

The course is an open one-mile and 5k race on the streets and bike paths in El Dorado Hills in the community where Ruff grew up and later worked. Medals and ribbons will be presented at the awards ceremony to top finishers of each gender and age category.

This timed event will also feature a T-shirt, goody bag and race pictures. Following the race participants will enjoy music, kids activities and awards.

There is a special Ruff’s Pups Elementary School 100-meter dash at the Oak Ridge Stadium free for children in second grade and younger. All participants will receive event finishers ribbon.
